5. Collect as Much Information as Possible

There are plenty of ways you can improve your financial literacy from the comfort of your own home. There are a range of books, magazine, television shows, websites, and smartphone apps that can help you with your finances. As with anything, just be initially skeptical of anything you are told, and check the information through another medium – if a book, website and TV show all tell you the same thing, it’s much more likely that it will be correct.
